Lexie: The new boat is not as stable as GRACEFUL was...nor is MISSIE at only an inch difference in beam. However, the new boat is not as "Barrel" shaped as MISSIE and both firm up considerably when heeled over...At least the new one has stanchions to grab when moving from place to place. You will not casually stroll anywhere on either of them! The subject of MISSIE's tenure in this household had NOT yet arisen. My first mate may have a big say in that! Cap'n Walnut
